Hi
                I know that Converse is free and an open source but just 
wanted to clarify the License.  Can it  be integrated into a product that 
is sold to a customer?  Is there any license issues with that?

Thanks,

Converse.js is licenced under the Mozilla Public Licence (MPL).

You are free to include the code in a larger commercial product.

You will not be required to open source the entire commercial product,
however you will be required to keep all files which constitute 
Converse.js itself open source.

If you modify any of the files in the Converse.js repository, you are required
to make these modifications public.

Additionally you are required to inform recipients of the product that the
source code of some of the product is under the MPL and how they can obtain a
copy of that license.

You can read the license in its entirety here:
